Our ten world-class manufacturing facilities employ the latest advancements in equipment technology, allowing us to minimize changeover times and service our customers in a cost-effective manner that meets their requirements. Given the highly competitive nature of our business, we are intensely focused on operating as the low cost producer and minimizing the costs associated with converting hot-rolled steel wire rod, our primary raw material, into finished product. Considering the substantial investments we have made in our facilities and our advanced manufacturing practices, we believe that our unit conversion costs compare favorably with any of our competitors - domestic or offshore.

Our facilities are strategically located in close proximity to our customers and suppliers, enhancing our customer service capabilities and minimizing our costs for outbound and inbound freight.

Underlying our manufacturing activities is a sophisticated information systems infrastructure that provides us with a broad range of performance metrics and decision-support tools to continually monitor and fine tune our processes.
